37lb 2oz common tops seven fish haul

This 37lb 2oz common carp was the highlight of a seven fish catch for Rich Seeds during a 24 hour session on the Carp Society’s Farriers Lake.

Targeting an area of light weed at 15yds range in a shallow bay, the Hampshire-based 28-year-old used critically-balanced snowman rigs consisting of 20mm Sticky Vortex bottom baits with 16mm pop-ups to achieve a good presentation and also landed two other thirties of 34lb and 31lb and three twenties to 28lb.

Each rod was baited with 2kg of freebies and was then topped up again after every bite.
